My counsel

posted Mar 16, 2017 05:21:36 by Sarah Hunter
This morning I was praying about my role in serving the Lord. I asked what I need to do to prepare myself. The phrase, "an eye single to the glory of God," came to mind, so I looked up the scripture:

D&C 4:5- And faith, hope, charity and love, with an eye single to the glory of God, qualify him for the work.

Just thought I would share with fellow seekers, because it was such lovely counsel, on a day when I'm really struggling to make sense of my lot. ❤🙏🏽❤🙏🏽

Luke 10:27

27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength,
and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."

Yes. The path is narrow and the way is strait.

In Him we are justified for the work, and sanctified by grace.

I've often wondered why they use the word Strait when it's just another word for Narrow

D&C 88:67 And if your eye be single to my glory, your whole bodies shall be filled with light, and there shall be no darkness in you; and that body which is filled with light comprehendeth all things.

It's been my favorite scripture for 10 years! I just recently caught the small detail that says your BODIES shall be filled with light. Physical and spiritual! Probably even the other bodies that energy workers talk about - the light body, the aura body etc...

That is perfect Jesse! I love D&C 88! I could spend hours lost in that chapter!
